A Lot Like Birds
A Lot Like Birds is a post-hardcore band from Sacramento, CA, known for their tendency to flawlessly blend a wide array of genres; from ambient soundscapes to aggressive punk-fueled anthems to unpredictable prog-rock freakouts.
The band was initially the brainchild of guitarist Michael Franzino. Franzino invited a couple Sacramento-based musicians and friends to perform with him, the result being Plan B, the band’s debut album. After solidifying a consistent lineup, the band started to pick up buzz in the Sacramento scene, with their dynamic and energetic live shows getting rave reviews.

We are Stolas [stoh-less] from Las Vegas, NV. We have an EP titled “Losing Wings” that is now available under our Music tab.
The Venetia Fair
We’re a band called The Venetia Fair and we have no fucking clue what we’re doing.
Our names are Benny, Mr. Chark, Mike, Joe Brown, and Chris. My name, specifically, is Benny and I feel like I’m babysitting four 12-year-olds all the time. Actually, I feel like I’m a 12-year-old babysitting four other 12-year-olds and doing a really bad job (even for a 12-year-old).
Mr. Chark is like that weird 1…2-year-old who has a calculator watch, carries a compass (but still gets lost all the time), and loves the sound of his own voice, especially when he’s not using words. Mike’s more like a hyperactive 14-year-old who got held back and has to hang out with the younger kids but doesn’t mind because he gets to be better than them at everything and the older kids are boring,anyway.
Joe Brown is the obnoxious 12-year-old who steals “chromies” off of tires in the parking lot and learns obscene words to scream so he can explain that “it actually means female dog!” to his angry teachers. And then there’s Chris, the excitable 12-year-old who can’t wait to get a sip of his dad’s beer or a peek down a girl’s shirt. Hanging out with us is probably more aggravating than anything else but I think we’re all best friends. If we actually were 12 years old, we’d be in a secret club and have an awesome fort.
